DraftKings Picks Week 2: NFL DFS lineup advises daily fantasy football GPP tournaments

The opening week of the NFL season always delivers for (daily) fantasy football owners. Who, of course, should say whether the package contains a lot of happiness or a lot of heartache? Whether you were back with the former or the latter in your DFS competitions last week, the show continues as we look forward to our selection of DraftKings tournaments in week 2.

The Washington Football Team, Giants, Chiefs, Ravens, Lions and Packers are in standalone prime-time slots this week, so we do not have access to any of their players on the main disc. We’re going to dig deep into a couple of wide receiving pitches to push a few key pieces into the lineup, but we think there’s reason to be bullish on these lotteries this week.

Just a reminder, here are the remarkable scoring rules for DraftKings contests: Full-point PPR, four-point existing TDs, three-point bonuses for 100 rushing yards, 100 receiving yards and 300 passing yards.

DraftKings Picks Week 2: NFL DFS lineup for GPP tournaments

Sunday main slate, $ 50,000 budget

QB Tom Brady, Buccaneers vs. Falcons ($ 6,900). Sportsbooks not only opened this Buccaneers-Falcons matchup with the highest over / under (52) on the main disc, but the Bucs were installed as 10.5-point favorites. Brady and Bruce Arians love to throw it, and it’s reasonable to expect lots of aerial fireworks from this group after the Eagles chopped Falke up in Week 1.

RB Dalvin Cook, Vikings @ Cardinals ($ 9,100). Christian McCaffrey ($ 9,900) was a little out of our budget this week, but Cook is a wonderful “fallback” option. He may not threaten the DraftKings bonus for 100 receiving yards like McCaffrey, but Cook is more than capable of breaking the 100-yard rushing plateau he did eight times in 2020.

WEEK 2 DFS LINEUPS: FanDuel | Yahoo

RB Chris Carson, Seahawks vs. Titans ($ 6,100). This is a bet on the volume and the favorable outlook from Vegas (SEA -3.5, O / U 49). Carson handled 19 touches last week, leading the backcourt by a large margin. His DK score of week 1 (13.7 points) leaves a lot to be desired, but that’s what happens when you fumble and get shut out of the end zone. However, Russell Wilson does not get 100 percent of the score all season, so Carson’s turn to visit the paint comes sooner or later.

WR Mike Evans, Buccaneers ($ 6,100). We like to stack Brady with Evans this week, mainly because of the presumption that much of the field will be sour with the prospect of placing Evans in lineups after last week’s three-catch, 24-yard stink. Brady is going to be spreading around in candy this season, as if it’s Halloween, and Bucs recipients will have to wait in line at times. If week 2 really is Evans’ turn, we’ll get a favorable price in a juicy matchup. You might want to choose Chris Godwin or even Antonio Brown in cash games, but Evans is the perfect type of GPP choice.

Quarterback | Ran back | Wide receiver | Close end | D / ST | Kicker

WR Will Fuller, Dolphins Vs. Bills ($ 4,800). Fuller earned the last of his six-game suspension and is ready to fit in with his new team. Slightly miscast as an exclusively “boom-or-bust” recipient, Fuller recorded 20 plus DK points on five occasions in 2020, including a 38.1-point outburst on Thanksgiving. The defense proposal will provide more resistance than the Lions did on that occasion, but Fuller is a threat to ignite in a given week. He is yet another prototypical tournament choice.

WR Bryan Edwards, Raiders @ Steelers ($ 3,700). This is not an ideal matchup, but we have a tight budget for this choice. Edwards commanded just five goals in Week 1 — a draw to third on the team — but all five came in the second half and overtime, coming in about half a yard short after a touchdown to go with 81 yards. If he can force himself into a larger piece of the passing game, he will be worth a roll of the dice at this price point.

Quarterback | Ran back | Wide receiver | Close end | D / ST | Kicker

TE Noah Fant, Broncos @ Jaguars ($ 4,200). Target volume does not always logically redistribute itself in the wake of an injury to a top receiver. However, we will still bet on Fant, who finished week 1 with the team’s lead in goal (eight). Jerry Jeudy will miss several weeks with an anchorage in high ankle, and Fant characters can be leaned even more up in the passing game.

Flex (RB) Najee Harris, Steelers vs. Raiders ($ 6,300). It was not the debut Harris owners had in mind, but we’re going back to the well. It’s too early to get discouraged with Harris locked in the lead role. He received 16 carries and three goals against a tough bill defense. It won’t be long before he enjoys a breakout game and his price tag rises.

WEEK 1 FANTASY: Sleepers | Breasts | Start them, sit them

DEF Carolina Panthers vs. Saints ($ 2,700) Okay, so there has to be some credit to the Jets offensive to make the Panthers defense look so good in Week 1. However, the Panthers have young, talented playmakers at every level in this unit and are making noise all season. The Saints lit the Packers last week, so the Panthers are unlikely to pull increased ownership. If you do not feel matchup, the Bears ($ 2,800) also fit our budget. They opened as four-point favorites ahead of their home date with the Bengals.
